Top Hand Rodeo Tour Coming To Kinect


Giddy up!

If you’ve ever wished you could participate in rodeo events from the comfort of your living room (and who hasn’t?), then you are in luck this holiday season. D3 Publisher has announced that Top Hand Rodeo Tour is available at Walmart exclusively for the Xbox360 Kinect. If you’ve ever actually attended a rodeo, you might be curious as to how that actually would work in a kinect title. According to the press release, “Top Hand Rodeo Tour is the first authentic interactive rodeo video game where players can hop in the saddle and compete in a number of thrilling rodeo events like Bull Riding, Tie Down Roping, Mounted Shooting, Team Roping, Barrel Racing, and more with up to four players. In addition, players can freshen up their competitive talents back at the ranch with fun skill building mini-games. With a complete range of full motion controls; swing your rope, shoot your gun, and ride a bull like a pro using all the exact motions, skills, and technique required to be a Top Hand Champion!”

To be honest, I’m still a little confused, particularly with the “hopping in the saddle” part, but it sounds like an awesomely good time, and a great family activity for Thanksgiving festivities. Check out the trailer below:
